gun violence prevention task force in the house. this group was set up by nancy pelosi last month to be the voice of congressional democrats on reform. and it tells you something about the diversity of the democratic party on this issue, right, to be able to have nancy pelosi, who has the exact position on guns that you think she has, to have a nancy pelosi drafting leadership help on this issue from, among others, john dingell, a former board member of the nra, a former a-plus rated nra legislator. but for all of congressman dingell's nra bona fides, if you think that is the only thing worth knowing about him, you are missing a big part of the picture. last month, congressman dingell's wife, debbie dingell published a very personal op-ed in the "washington post." "when i was about to start eighth grade, my father almost shot my mother. it was another of their many ugly fights. i got between them literally and tried to grab the gun. i will never forget that night. the shouting. the fear. the raw fear that we would all die, my brother and sisters along with my parents. my calling f

minority leader, nancy pelosi. close at his heels is chuck schumer, something you will all throughout the day. there's a lot of talk in washington about how republicans don't want to be here or how this is not a republican event, this is a democratic event. it is not like that. this formally -- there's former president bill clinton and secretary of state, hillary clinton, there. this is about governance and the presidency. this is not about who won the election, except in the technical sense. this is pomp and circumstance that should be everybody involved in governance as signified in a visible way by the presence of supreme court justices. supreme court justices do not avail themselves of political environments unless they are behaving in a way unbecoming or for justice. to have them there today is a reminder of the power of the united states. >> there are two people that have been fantastic for the country and barack obama. secretary of state, hillary clinton, and of course, bill clinton, former president. he was hired to work re-election for barack obama. >> former president carter

was on the police officer of the u.s. house this morning. with former speaker nancy pelosi and many others, and the second amendment is part of that, as is the first amendment to speak about what we would like to do and readdress agreements. look at what the president provides. it's troubling to me that the president says if congress doesn't do what i want, i'm iffing to issue an executive order. you know, the power to make laws starts in the house and senate, and that's where we'll take a look at this, but, again, many my district and in many others overwhelmingly people in kansas are not looking for new laws out of washington. they're looking for more involvement in their communities and their families, at the state level rather than the washingtonian law. >> new york state is taking action today. the toughest gun laws in the country. again, if things are not done at the federal level, guns move across state borders very, very easily. doesn't there need to be some federal law? >> there are obviously plenty of laws, and that's one concern i do have is the failure to enforce current laws.
. just asking myself that question. >> think of the cooperative relationship obama and nancy pelosi had and how crucial to getting all that stuff through the first two years. >> still need that apparatus. >> unnecessary -- >> i won't call it a favorite inaugural moment. i'm going to call it a cautionary tale. the longest address ever was william harris harrison's inaugural address in 1841. it was nearly two hours. think about that. two hours. that you're standing out there in the cold. watching this old time fighter just sort of ramble on and on and on. cautionary tale is he didn't wear a coat and he got a cold and literally -- 30 days later, died of pneumonia. keep it brief, fellows. keep it brief. >> wait. hasn't that whole cold -- actually being in the cold leading to illness thing been debunked? >> not in process of this. >> sorry. >> not for this segment. >> cold water on your -- >> just wondering. >> in the 1840s they thought that not wearing a coat got you a cold. >> all right. >> but i'll still make sure that my daughter wears a coat. >> that's the story. >> speaking of children
weeks later, he sits down with nancy pelosi and harry reid, passed 780 billion in stimulus, no one having read the bill and the republicans gut it and the speeches were wrong. the president tomorrow is going to sound right, okay? if he follows through on tomorrow's speech, he has a chance to be eisenhower. i don't think he will. i think he wants to be roosevelt in his second term. but that's neither here nor there. if congressional republicans can reach out on issues, take the case of gun control, i think the house judiciary committee ought to hold hearings in chicago. this is the president's hometown. the mayor is the president's former chief of staff. they have very strict gun control. and they are the murder capital of the united states, 516 dead last year. i think having a hearing on what happened before we rush into the next, you know , panacea, would be a useful exercise on a non-partisan basis. >> this idea and the other idea the speaker talked about about members of the black caucus going into republican district is kind of fascinating. part of the problem we have is the di
democratic leader nancy pelosi. >> michael beschloss, a little different in mood from the folks who are already outside to the president and his party moving through the hallway. half of them look like they're headed for an execution. >> i think that's right. and maybe not very rationale now. four years ago, maybe because barack obama came with problems coming from almost every direction. now at least he's in a situation where he can give a speech to give a little bit more of what he would like to do rather than how he's going to respond to things that have been thrown in his lap. >> sergeant of arms broke it up a little bit by saying something to the president that got a smile out of him. but everyone is remarking the same things, david, today. the president's older and grayer. daughters have grown up. we've all changes. four years at that. look at that crowd. >> i was thinking about this. we're not the own ones glued to our screens here. the president is walking tighter and straighter, shoulders up, understanding the ceremony has a purpose because the whole world is watching our t
measure to hit the halls of congress. but house democratic leader nancy pelosi, heading into a hearing on new gun restrictions with philadelphia mayor, michael nutter, said the add crosses a line. >> i thought it was completely inappropriate to involve the president's children. they have protection because of national security and it was really inappropriate. >> do you think the nra made a mistake there? >> it's just a disgrace. >> reporter: other house democrats said the ad amounted to intimidation. >> we're dealing with people who aren't tiserribly stable, so i think that kind of ad, i think, is dangerous. >> reporte >> it was irresponsible, and you know, this is not your grandfather's nra. >> reporter: there was also outrage over at the white house. "most americans agree that a president's children should not be used as pawns in a political fight," said press secretary john carney, "but to go so far as to make the safety of the president's children the subject of an attack ad is repugnant and cowardly." david keene it is not an attack on the president's children. >> we believe the s
. pretty negative response from nancy pelosi, the democratic leader in the house. this pros poll sas, she says, does not relieve the uncertainty faced by the middle class. this is a gimmick unworthy of the challenges we face and the national debate we should be having. the message for the american people is clear, no gauges, no default. is there a lack of coordination in the response between pelosi and the white house? >> look, i think both sides are true. it's positive that the republicans and the congress are backing off of that threat. it's also true that we can't go in three-month increments having a debate about whether we're going to pay our bills and whether we're going to jeopardize the full faith and credit of the united states of america. we need to work this through, find a long-term solution for this and bring some certainty to the economy. >> i'm not sure i'd say it's an entirely positive statement from the white house saying that, gee, republicans need to stop holding a gun to americans' head. that's true. but of course that's not what is happening. we've spent the money and
. the fact, there's still a republican house and a democratic senate. >> i talked to nancy pelosi earlier being out here and i asked her about the chance dash is there any chance they will be able to get rid of the logjam in washington, d.c. i know the politics are set aside during the inauguration but they have to start to get along. >> maybe one on immigration reform. that's one i sense, the chamber of commerce has been pushing on it. but we'll see on that. when it comes to gay rights, for example, what exactly does he want to do? that's the details i think we don't know about. as you well know, just mentioning something and putting it on the table, not only excites the supporters but then puts attention on it. but, of course, the congress only has so much oxygen on so many issues and i think the gun violence issue is gonna take a lot of attention and a lot of energy from this white house in the months ahead. >> we talked in the past how you need to pick your battles and see how much political you want to burn. and there's the economy, the jobs which was his focus for the first term. >>
, and the minority leader, nancy pelosi, understand that we must approach a national disaster such as the superstorm together. and as a body, whether it was anita lowey, rodney frelinghuysen, chris smith, michael grimm, frank lobiondo, we as a body understood we had a job to do. the gentlewoman from new york, the ranking member of this committee, louise slaught, and i understood the responsibility. because we had people back home like mayor william acres of seaside heights, new jersey, who talked to jon runyan or perhaps sylvia pa tellow -- patello talked to her congressman about the need of the communities. one nation under god. the united states coming together at a time of extreme difficulty. and that's what we have done. we have worked well together. we have worked with the governors, governors from pennsylvania, new york, certainly governor christie of new jersey. mayor bloomberg of new york. people who got together and worked. we did wait for the president's declaration of a national emergency. and we did after 40 days and some few hours after that receive the bill. but i think this house of r
nancy pelosi's speakership. they're playing -- it's the long play. >> i have a question for you. what do you think the polls would have shown before "madd" was organized to have a campaign against drunk driving about whether you could have an open container in your car or whether it's wise to drive after having a couple shooters in a bar. or whether you're going somewhere and somebody in the back seat has a six-pack. what do you think the polls would say about that? >> all of that matters. and i think what the -- undertone of what the president was saying, he has to marshal this kind of cultural battle. it's not automatic. we can sit here in midtown manhattan where everybody would agree with us. but outside of here, not everybody does. in fact, there is an amazing statistic that shows that 23% of people in our poll call the availability of guns as the cause of gun violence compared with 37% who pointed to parenting and 37% who talked about public culture. >> but rick, i've got to bring this up too. i love that you're bringing up counterintuitive polls. but you're saying polls show that 5
elections elections, no, you don't. two elections ago, we get routed by nancy pelosi. >> let's get to a break. we have a lot ahead. don't forget to share your photos of today's inauguration. you can find us on twitter. send us everything. we want to see it. still ahead this morning, live from the dubliner retired general colin powell valerie jarrett, nbc's tom brokaw "hardball's" chris matthews and presidential historian doris kerns goodwin. >>> up next, the political playbook -- oh my gosh, the line. the political playbook with jim. first, bill karins is here with a check on the forecast. bill. >> mika this crowd, once again, you won't believe how long this line is. so many wonderful people out here. you came all the way from the bahamas, and you did it four years ago too. >> i did it four years ago. >> very impressive. from virginia maryland. you two both work in the navy. you're from? >> california. >> and you're from? >> ohio. i worked on the campaign. >> both times or just the last year? >> just this last year. >> good job. i think it worked. >> a little bit. >>
reid, nancy pelosi, eric cantor, and john boehner will be headed over there. first, president obama began with the slogan hope and change. then he got a jolt of washington reality. we'll take a look back at the some times rocky road of the first term. >> we've seen that crowd building, craig. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. the crowd, indeed, has been growing throughout the morning. say hello. say hello. before you get from the u.s. capital behind me, the less it is like an inauguration, the more it is like a block party/picnic. folks from texas, buffalo, new york, who have said several times this is far from cold. i do want to -- where are you from? >> from new jersey. >> reporter: from new jersey. first inauguration? >> yes, it is. >> reporter: what brings you out? >> obama all the way. >> reporter: how about you? where are you from? >> trenton, new jersey. >> reporter: oh, this is all jersey here? i should have known by the rowdiness. and where are you guys from? >> atlanta, georgia. >> reporter: from atlanta. sorry about the falcons but welcome to d.c. >> it's al
